concern for the police intervening was that it would create tensions that would be an unmanageable use of public space and it would be difficult to negotiate how the public space could be used. the movement itself would probably grow as there's police used against it. sunday, police action occurred and we saw that the occupiers increased in number and that made it difficult to action negotiate the use of space again. then we saw what happened in oakland. this was something that was horrendous in terms of how the police department in oakland had used teargas, reports of more bullets or protect those that cause the damage to people's bodies including bruises, cuts, and one member was hit by a projectile and suffered a skull fracture and was in critical condition for a couple of days. after the police force and oakland use force against the occupation, the occupation only grew in number and this created a very difficult way for the city of oakland to negotiate how the public's base could be used in the time to come. shortly after that, we have the threat of imminent use of police forces are

earlier will come with the eir and conditional use discussions. i think there are three fundamental problems we are trying to deal with. we have an institution that sees the entire city as its campus and they have an opportunistic real estate program. this year, i think it will be taking in $275 million from tuition 199 million is federal money. there is no ceiling on their body. they will grow, grow, grow. the policy is to buy and use existing housing 10 town they are reducing demand that would only exists for that policy of unlimited growth. our goal going forward and i think the commissioners struck a good tone is to figure out a combination of regulations and incentives that get them to build new housing or convert buildings and to focus on certain areas that make sense with its high transit capacity. >> good afternoon, commissioners. i have two separate comments. i would like to make a comment about the academy of art. the more general comment about the institution like this seems to me that the current mayor has 8 jobs driven economic development strategy. this it needs to lea

of the time i was there. 6:30. and then later you can see at all ages, women still use the bicycle more than then -- men, in their 30's to 50's. and how far do they go? still, the girls are top of this list and they use the bicycle for seven kilometers per day. and then you can see that it goes down fast but still, oh, here men are cycling further. so the men that are using the bicycles cycle further than the women and that is explained by the fact that women mostly work near their homes and men commute over a longer distance. we did a survey on emotion that people felt when they were traveling -- were driving the streets or riding and we asked them what feelings do you have. how do you feel? and then cyclists mostly answered i feel joy. and they hardly felt fear or anger or sadness or even aversion and if you compare that with transport then that's not so joyful and people don't like it so much and it made them even angry. and for the car you can see that the people are more afraid in cars and more angry in cars than on the bicycle. that's a nice conclusion from this result i want

[applause] president chiu: that concludes our presentations for today. before we close the ceremony, i would like to acknowledge the folks who have help from the city. paula jones from our department of public health has been our director of food assistance. she has worked to make sure we have restaurants that are working as well to promote our public health as possible. i also want to see if we have luke o'brien, president of the small business commission. would you like to say a few words on behalf of the commission? commissioner o"brien: >> good afternoon, supervisors. far be it for me to be biased in any way to all of the businesses today, but i would have to follow up supervisor campos's recognition. i happened to totally by accident take my wife, who is of thai origin and has discerning taste buds, as difficult to please as anybody i know, to there, because we happened to be in the neighborhood. when she walked out of there, she had a grin from ear to ear, and commented ho

about the same thing. commissioner moore: i have a better pen, if you want to use that. >> pulling the railing back from there. i do not think in this area, there is another concern. in the neighboring property to the south project out for further than ours -- the neighboring property to the south project out far further than ours. commissioner moore: i want to make sure you are not hitting this line. you might consider angling this back a little bit. >> something like that. we will work on the exact details, but i understand the concern. i think that will continue to leave a large enough deck that it can be a rear yard in the sky, or something, and allow the family to entertain and use that space. commissioner sugaya: not to prolong this, but i am in favor of the project. mr. williams, i am getting the impression from the dr requestors that they either did not know or have a feeling that the unit, either one, was not going to be occupied by the project sponsor. because testimony said, "there are going to be luxury condominium units, and we will have whatever people moving in upsetting

to share information that was difficult to use. it was a very clunky program, very difficult, and because we did not use it on a regular basis, that made it even worse. we went back to a paper-based system to look at how we do business as a city and how we want to operate in an emergency. we went to the vendors and said, "ok, here is how we work. give us a platform that works on the way we do things instead of a platform that causes us to have to change how we do things." long story, but in the end, we picked webeoc. it came out pretty strong, pretty easy to use. it is pretty intuitive. learning curves have to be accounted for, and each time we use it, we learn more and more. that goes to the more we use it, the better we get at it, and the more valuable it becomes, the more we can refine it appeared we have seen a trend where people are getting better at using it and we are identifying better how to use it. utilization to coordinate events i think continues to be a good use of everybody's time. sometimes it seems a little slow. sometimes it seems like, "why are we here?" i would

are asking for this to help us by some time. we realize that in seven months there will be a core group of people who need an analog to the service that we have. we have not had time to have adequate conversations about the health plan with the state and ask about what might be possible. supervisor chu: i know that one quick question i have is that the cut we are expecting in the local area is from capital and that local establishing funding. i wonder, if we were to allocate this $3.4 million, would we be able to receive any kind of federal matching? >> what the state did when they cut this, they cut it out of the health plan. likely not. we are hoping that there are conversations going on at the state with another drawdown on the federal funds. these are folks who are eligible for services. certainly, they are eligible for health care and they are getting it in one place, of which you would think would be more expensive to get those in different ways. that is what we are going to be doing over the next few months. supervisor? supervisor mirkarimi: was a the state that initiated t

, if some of the cuts you do come back to this committee, and you update us if there are any other changes we should be aware of? >> after the result of the election -- after we know the results of the election, i think it would be good to revisit where we are. supervisor chu: in terms of a bridge funding source, i am very supportive of that. i think if we did have such of a service stoppage, it would have a very bad impact on many of our most frail residents in the city, so i would be supportive of that. my hesitation on this item is the fact that i am not sure we really are justified in adding staff. that is a total part of the supplemental overall. i will support the item going out of committee today, but what are the light from the department is to come back to the committee over the next week before it does come before the supervisors and provide that information for us, especially at a time when we think we would be cutting additional service. i am loath to add staffing, especially if we are not sure we need it. i would like the department to comeback to share with us how thi
